One of the surprise teams early on in the NBA season is the Los Angeles Lakers. USA TODAY’s Sam Amick caught up with first-year coach Luke Walton about the good start and the outlook.
Walton talks about how the team has belief that they can compete, something they haven’t done in a few seasons. One of the reasons, they discuss, is how he relates to a young group of players. They talk about the energy at Staples Center as Lakers fans are excited for this team.
